Disney Plus is trying is saying “May the fourth be with you” with some new behind-the-scenes “Mandalorian” content.
On May 4, known of course as Star Wars Day, the streamer will premiere an eight-part docuseries on the making of the popular series which spawned Baby Yoda and has been a driving force behind the platform’s early success.
This week, we found out that Disney is getting ready to make a new movie based completely around one of our favorite rides, Space Mountain. It is almost inconceivable that it has taken this long, but this is a bit of what we hope we see. We would love to hear what you want to see in the movie!
The Dip, Also Known As “Toon Acid”, is a greenish, ghastly chemical seen in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It’s Judge Doom’s preferred method of Toon execution. According to Lieutenant Santino, it’s a mixture of turpentine, acetone, and benzene, which all of them are paint-thinners. Combined in the real world, they make up the solution hand animators used to use to remove ink from animation cells. This could be considered an inside joke, as your average audience member would not know what these ingredients made up. While relatively harmless to humans, any toon that comes in contact with it will melt instantly and is apparently the only surefire way to kill a toon (although Eddie Valiant gets most of The Toon Patrol members to laugh themselves to death). Ironic enough, Judge Doom ends up being dipped himself near the end of the film, after revealing himself to be actually a toon.
